After reading a lot of bloggers talking about this product I thought it would be fun to try it out.
This product is the L'ORÉAL PARIS Casting Sunkiss Jelly and it's supposed to softly lighten your hair, making it look like the sun and the beach did it. The idea is awesome! I really like my hair in the summer, it usually gets some lighter reflexes and having a product that can help me get that look in the winter it is just awesome. But first, just let me talk about the packaging -- I love the marbleized bottle. Oh, so beautiful!
It's very simple to use, you just apply it on hair and let it sit. It says in the box that you can apply it to yet or dry hair, and let your hair dry naturally or use a blow dryer and those different combinations will give you different results. I reckon that using it on dry-hair and then blowing it dry, will give you a stronger result, because water will dilute the product and heat always helps to activate bleaches. This product is supposed to give you a progressive lightning, meaning, you have to use this product several times, and each time you use it our hair will become lighter and lighter.
The product it self is a foggy white jelly, very easy to apply. It smells exactly like a descolorante agent, like hydrogen peroxide, that you'd use to bleach your harm hairs or facial hairs... They advise you to wear gloves -- I din't but you should.
The fist time I used it, I was kinda of scared of the results -- I didn't knew what to expect. So for my first use, I applied it to my wet hair, and then removed the excess with an old towel and I blew dry my hair. It did nothing. My hair was exactly the same. So I waited a week and tried a second time. This time I applied it to my dry hair and I just blew dry it. Still no change, I repeated this process two more times, and by the forth time, I finally stared to notice that my hair was starting to get lighter. It was still not very intense. I tried to take a picture but it's just not noticeable enough, but is definitely slightly lighter.
I researched a bit, and I think that this product is targeted for lighter hairs. My hair is too dark for this to actually work. Or I'll have to use it 10 or 15 times to see some actual results.
For me it din't work, but I love the concept and if you have lighter hair, you should definitely try this!
